No cooking tonight. I was helping out the MP’s Block Visit this evening, followed by a Resident Block Party, with food and fruits. During the block visit by MP, I acted as the writer, to jot down feedback and requests raised by the residents addressing to certain government department, e.g. HDB, Town Council, LTA, and etc.
MP, a Member of Parliament, is a representative elected by the people voters of an electoral district to the parliament. In Singapore, MP usually conducts Meet-the-People session once a week and/ or a house-to-house visit will be scheduled within his/ her constituency every now and then. The RC, Resident Committee, of its estate will also organise block parties/ activities for the residents.read more
“Just another way to serve your fruits, with Nata de Coco this time!”
I go supermarket almost every other day, to buy daily groceries and food as well as checking out information on any latest food or food-related products.
Nata de Coco – It might sound unfamiliar when first heard it, but you surely have tasted it before. In cafeteria, dessert store or elsewhere, just could not recall its name at times (smiling). It’s OK even if this is first time you heard about it.
Nata de Coco was originated from Philippines. It is chewy, juicy and slightly translucent, jelly-like coconut water (which has been fermented) in tiny cubes. Nata de Coco is high in dietary fiber. One of the best food/ snack for dieting, health conscious people like you and me, as it contains zero fat and cholesterol as well as low in calories. And, it’s tasty! Even though Nata de Coco is often sweetened, but its calories count only 60kcal per serving of generous portion.read more
“Mashed Potato with 2 toppings of sweet & salty that never fails to impress. Served in petite cup size, just as perfect as the canapés for your house party.”
Looking for something to be served at your house party? Or a quick snack before your dinner date? Maybe for an afternoon tea?
This was one of the sides I had in my food library brain that I wished to share. Previously, this mashed potato was served in large single portion meant for 1-2 of us at home as our quick lunch. I thought it might be better to remain it as a side and to serve at a tea party or something. I decorated it in cups, instead. read more
“Chocolate Fondue, everyone’s favourite! Make this on the Valentine’s Day, for your Valentine..”
Besides having chocolate fondue at Häagen-Dazs which costs you about $30+ for 2, you can actually enjoy this decadent dessert from home! I like to have it at home, a homemade one!
That’s another way of enjoying fruits, as dessert, too. You can have it served in minutes.
Make your own chocolate fondue isn’t difficult. Have it after dinner, weekend tea time, treats for friend’s visit to your house, and etc.. It is too simple to enjoy it at home everyday indeed, if you wish…read more
This is a very simple homemade smoothie which doesn’t even need a blender to do the mixing. By all mean, go ahead with a blender, if it’s easier for you. The consistency between using a fork and into a blender differs a little. The later certainly yields more refine and smoother consistency.
This dessert takes less than10 min to make 2 glasses.
Serves 2 large glasses
2 honey mangoes, chilled and peeled
1 cup of plain yogurt (low-fat)
2 tablespoons of breakfast cereal (eg honey stars or cornflakes), lightly crushed
2 tablespoons of honeyread more
